Bumping into Alannah Hill

Meeting Alannah Hill

The New Semester has begun with Men’s and Womenswear being our main focus and project before our major and final semester !

What better way to explore different designers collections and tastes this season by hitting up none other than Sydney’s Westfield.

The day began with ZARA, just casually hanging around in front waiting for the class to arrive.

In the distance this Sparkling Tall Lady Approaching, her hair and makeup magnificently done with a lovely floral printed skirt that swept the floor – It looked like her ? Could it be ? Really ? OMG it actually was ALANNAH HILL !

Following her around in Zara wondering whether we should approach her like annoying paparazzi clogging up space to ask for a photograph. An excited Bunch we were !

Finally I decided that I just couldn’t possibly leave the store without approaching her so I did.

She was one of the nicest designers I’d ever Met ! When we were told by Zara’s staff we couldn’t take photographs inside their store she even offered to drop her shopping and for us to come outside and take photographs before commencement ! How lovely was that !

wesrttHey guys!
Its Rhaya here, reporting back to all our fans from one of Australia’s biggest runway shows hosted by Westfield.com.au!

Having received the luckiest chance to be able to work behind-the-scenes at such a spectacular show it truly became an amazing experience. I worked closely with Stylist Jono Nicholls and JBP productions staff, to casting and fitting models, arranging looks and sections to bring to the public a “not to be missed opportunity for Sydney fashionistas”

The morning was a fairly crisp one and everyone’s fingers were crossed that the rain wouldn’t ruin the outdoor experience at Circular Quay’s Customs house. As the crew put together the last of the 44 metre catwalk and seating the sun began to warm things up.

Backstage, the hardworking hair and makeup artists from Napoleon Perdis, as well as the brilliant dressers (including of course yours truly) were assisting with the pampering up process of the 100 models that were to star on this runway. We went from perfecting the sections, and organising the running order to taping all the beautiful shoes provided from Brands like Ellery, Peep toe, Guess, and Tony Bianco. Finally it was Show time, getting the garments perfected on the models in running order and ensuring things were running smoothly.

Having a Sharp eye for design details and labels, I not only fell in love with half the collections on show but I also realised that Ladakh was amongst the gorgeous garments. With the Runway Being a complete success, we can shop selected Ladakh items from Westfield like never before, all our favourite brands in the one spot. “Unlimited shopping, One Checkout”.
